The city isnt kidding when it issues a summons over fire-code violations, as former Employees Only chef Jeremy Spector and 103 other people discovered last weekend. Eater reports that Spector pleaded guilty to illegally storing propane tanks and was fined $250. The other summoned parties included Hirokos Place in Soho, Flatiron testosterzone Porkys, and McKennas Pub in Chelsea.
Correction: In an earlier version of this post, we identified Jeremy Spector as Employees Only's chef. He is in fact the former chef. The current chef is Julia Jaksic.
